Yes, this was a very nice Saturday, weather wise, and company wise.  You see, my four siblings and the three spouses and hubby and I met in town for lunch.  Now, we don't get to do this often because my brother (my little brother as opposed to my Big Brother who lives in my sewing room) lives over two hours north, one sister is about an hour east, and another sister is almost that far south.  The baby sister and I live only about five miles apart.  So, after a delicious lunch in town, I had them all out here for coffee and dessert.  And I served 10 pound cheesecake.  Do you know 10 pound cheesecake?  The recipe is from the allrecipes site, and daughter Kari has made it several times.  Let me tell you about it.

It is made in a 9X13 cake pan with a simple graham cracker crust.  That's the healthy part!  The cheesecake like filling is 3 packages of cream cheese, 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk, and whipped cream, with a little lemon juice and vanilla thrown in for good measure.  You pour the mixture over the crust, refrigerate for awhile, and serve with fruit on the top.  I used fresh strawberries.  It is very good, very filling, and very fattening.  It's not as heavy as a regular cheesecake, but I'm sure it will make you heavier!  Probably by about 10 pounds!
